The Sun likely formed as part of a group of stars. A close stellar flyby by one of the solar siblings is probably responsible for the sharp outer edge in the solar system's mass distribution. The frequency of such close flybys can be used to determine the likely type of birth environment of the solar system. Young stellar groups develop very quickly, expanding significantly within just a few million

The gas gain in the range of 1.0–2 × 105 was measured for propane-based tissue equivalent gas mixtures in the pressure range of 9–500 hPa. The Zastawny and Mitev et al. models of avalanche growth were used to analyse the obtained data. Both models showed that for low pressures of the working mixture, (i.e., below 80 hPa), there were non–equilibrium states of the development of the electron avalanche

In this work, we formalize a new technique to investigate the joint posterior density of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) signal and its theoretical angular power spectrum given the observed data, using the global internal-linear-combination method first proposed in a paper by Sudevan & Saha in 2017. We implement the method on low-resolution CMB maps observed by the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy

The helium-enriched (He-enriched) metal-rich red giants of ω Centauri, discovered by Hema & Pandey using the low-resolution spectra from the Vainu Bappu Telescope, and confirmed by the analyses of the high-resolution spectra obtained from the HRS-South African Large Telescope for LEID 34225 and LEID 39048, are reanalyzed here to determine their degree of He enhancement/hydrogen deficiency (H deficiency)

We produce radiation hydrodynamics models of an active galactic nucleus torus plus outflow on 1–100 pc scales. This large scale permits direct comparison with observations, provides justification for configurations used in radiation transfer models, and tests the sensitivity of results of smaller scale dynamical models. We find that anisotropic radiation from an active galactic nucleus accretion disk

A number of ongoing surveys are likely to discover star–black hole binaries in our Galaxy in the near future. A fraction of them may be triple systems comprising an inner binary, instead of a single black hole, which might be progenitors of binary black holes (BBHs) routinely discovered now from the gravitational wave. We extend our previous proposal to locate inner BBHs from the short-term radial-velocity

The reprocessing of primary X-ray emission in the accretion disk of black hole X-ray binaries (BHXRBs) produces a reflection spectrum with the characteristic Fe K α fluorescence line. Strong low-frequency quasi-periodic oscillations (QPOs) are observed from BHXRBs, and the dependence of QPO properties (e.g., phase lag) on the inclination angle suggests that the observed QPO may be associated with a

The role of ideal-MHD instabilities in a prominence eruption is explored through 2D and 3D kinematic analysis of an event observed with the Solar Dynamics Observatory and the Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory between 22:06 UT on 2013 February 26 and 04:06 UT on 2013 February 27. A series of 3D radial slits are used to extract height–time profiles ranging from the midpoint of the prominence leading

A discussion of the advantages and limitations of the concept of critical balance (CB), as employed in turbulence phenomenologies, is presented. The incompressible magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) case is a particular focus. The discussion emphasizes the status of the original Goldreich & Sridhar CB conjecture relative to related theoretical issues and models in an MHD description of plasma turbulence. Issues

Recent advances from astronomical surveys have revealed spatial, chemical, and kinematical inhomogeneities in the inner region of the stellar halo of the Milky Way. In particular, large spectroscopic surveys, combined with Gaia astrometric data, have provided powerful tools for analyzing the detailed abundances and accurate kinematics for individual stars. Despite these noteworthy efforts, however

We present our analysis of the Lyman continuum (LyC) emission and escape fraction of 111 spectroscopically verified galaxies with and without active galactic nuclei (AGN) from2.26 < z < 4.3. We extended our ERS sample from Smith et al. with 64 galaxies in the GOODS North and South fields using WFC3/UVIS F225W, F275W, and F336W mosaics we independently drizzled using the HDUV, CANDELS, and UVUDF data

SNe Ia continue to play a key role in cosmological measurements. Their interpretation over a range in redshift requires a rest-frame spectral energy distribution model. For practicality, these models are parameterized with a limited number of parameters and are trained using linear or nonlinear dimensionality reduction. This work focuses on the related problem of estimating the number of parameters

Departures from standard spherically symmetric solar models, in the form of perturbations such as global and local-scale flows and structural asphericities, result in the splitting of eigenfrequencies in the observed spectrum of solar oscillations. Drawing from prevalent ideas in normal-mode-coupling theory in geophysical literature, we devise a procedure that enables the computation of sensitivity

We discuss the interstellar absorption from many atomic and molecular species seen in high-resolution Hubble Space Telescope/STIS UV and high signal-to-noise ratio optical spectra of the moderately reddened B3–5 V star HD 62542. This remarkable sight line exhibits both very steep far-UV extinction and a high fraction of hydrogen in molecular form, with strong absorption from CH, C 2 , CN, and CO, but
